I'd feel a lot more comfortable with meat eating if each man went out and hunted his own. But the life of a dairy cow, or egg laying chicken, or that future bacon, is a truly sad existence. And the demands that these factory slaughter houses have to keep up with is out of control. Not only is the human population higher, but also, meat is eaten more often and with more meals... and more meat variety per one meal. It's quite absurd! No one ever needs that much protein in one day! Higher demands leads to crummier lives for these animals and sloppier techniques to get the job done.
    What about free range eggs and humanitarian farms? Why go vegan rather than supporting those who are attempting to create an ethical option in opposition to slaughter houses?

    I tried that for a while. However, I've now found myself in a situation where I have to be a little thriftier. The prices on the free range eggs, and the like, often are a little pricier. I'd actually love to eventually have chickens of my own, so I won't feel the guilt of the guys trapped in cages.

    I'd like to be a vegetarian because A) I think it's healthier and B) it's a smaller environmental footprint (I don't empathize with the animals anymore), but having celiac disease rules out about 90% of vegetarian alternatives, so when there's a barbecue for example the only thing I can eat is burgers and sausages, sans bun.

    I was not a heavy meat eater before and after a stint in a vegan group house I am turning into a pescatarian vegan. :P It is a hodgepodge of ethical and political views and my taste preferences for food.

    I have no problem with eating meat, but the inhumane conditions, filth, and also the unfair economic relationships involved and the "footprint" left behind...I would love to buy all my produce and meat in a local humanely run collective or farm. So far, I have not found this for meat but I do enjoy eating produce from CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture)

    I eat seafood, not because "they can't scream" but because the methods for capturing and killing them seems more humane and natural than the unnatural and inhumane ways created by the pharma-agri-industrial complex.

    Also, it's very tasty!

    Also, it seems healthier and lighter than eating lots of meat.

    I rarely consume meat. I do consume sea food, but thats pretty rare as well.

    the entire thing grosses me out. The smell, the look, just knowing where it came from..

    however, I'd eat it if it was being served and I'm a guest... I'll try to dodge it if I can. but It's not a big deal if I do eat it.

    anything but beef makes me feel like throwing up... I do love steak though

    So I have no idea which one to pick.. Meat eater, who rarely eats meat???

    NF: 65% Meat eaters
    NT: 76% Meat eaters
    SJ: 50% Meat eaters
    SP: 67% Meat eaters

    We need more votes from the sensorish types.
    I've cut way back on meat, but still am not successful in cutting it out entirely. I eat less frequently than I should, which is part of the problem. Another problem is finding something appetizing at restaurants and lunch joints.

    We eat vegetarian meals fairly often but not because any of us are vegetarians and much more in the summer months. We raise a good portion of our own produce, I buy eggs and chickens from the farm down the road. We get a hog and side of beef every year from the same farm. The main reason is cost. I also like being somewhat self sufficient. And you really can't beat eating a salad you picked from the earth 10 minutes ago.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
